We currently have a waiting list of Shelter guinea pigs
that would like to enter our rescue, so we are definitely unable to
accept surrenders from private parties at this time.
If you are looking for a home for your guinea pig, check with
your local newspaper; they usually have a "Pet Adoption" section that
costs about $16 for 10 days. Try placing an ad. Also try putting up
signs in the vet clinics in your area. Ask for an adoption fee such
as $15 so that you don't attract someone looking for food for their
snake. Please be sure you aren't placing a guinea pig into a breeding
situation. Lastly, try not to place your pig in a classroom except
as a last resort, or unless the teacher is adopting the pig as their
own pet. Otherwise, at the end of the year, the pig has nowhere to
go, and guess who gets a phone call?
